, and to their families. i know all americans share in that sentiment. for generations, the united states of america has played a unique role as an anchor of global security and as an advocate for human freedom. mindful of the risks and costs of military action, we are naturally reluctant to use force to solve the world's many challenges. but when our interests and values are at stake, we have a responsibility to act. that's what's happened in libya over the course of these last six weeks. libya sits directly between tunisia and egypt. two nations that inspired the world when their people rose up to take control of their own destiny. for more than four decades, the libyan people have been ruled by a tyrant, moammar qaddafi. he has denied his people freedom. exploited their wealth. murdered opponents at home and abroad and terrorized innocent people around the world. including americans who were killed by libyan agents. last month qaddafi's grip of fear appeared to give way to the promise of freedom. and cities and towns across the country, libyans took to the streets to claim their basic human rights. a

. the second issue deals with america's interests and whether what happened in libya actually effects the united states. >> secretary gates said it is not of vital interest to the united states. >> i don't think it's vital interest for the united states but we clearly have interests there, and it's a part of the region which is a vital interest for the united states. >> what we're doing and qaddafi's history and the potential for the disruption and instability was very much in our interests as bob said and seen by our european friends and our arab partners as very vital to their interests. >> shepard: well, those interests, of course, include all together now, oil. libya has the world's ninth largest proven reserves of oil. and 90% of libya's oil goes to europe. primarily italy, germany, france, and spain. there is one more overarching issue with libya. that's whether it sets a bad new bar. in other words, is what we do now a sort of indicator of what's to come later if there is another uprising? or is this some sort of special case? secretary clinton says places like syria or the ivo

: do you think it is in the united states of america's national interest that qaddafi has to go? we know it's in the interest of the libyan people, but is it in our national interest? >> yes, it is, because if qaddafi stays there is no question that he will be mischief in the days ahead, as he has been in the past. furthermore, i think what is happening all across the middle east is in our strategic national interest. if we have emerging democracies, people who come out who say to al qaeda, "look, we didn't have one suicide bomber, we didn't have one violent, you know, sort of explosive act against the west or somebody to make a dramatic statement. we took matters into our own hands with respect to our own government and we have produced change." that just, you know, that's not an iranian moment. it's not an al qaeda moment. it's the people of libya attaching themselves to the very values and principles that we have espoused for so many years in that region. i think if these countries do reform, and they do give greater voice to their people and there is greater opportunity, economi
